Windows 7 update error 80070490. 6 updates failing

Hello! I'm having a pretty hard time with a computer. There are six updates which are failing -


Each time I receive error code 80070490. So far I've tried sfc /scannow, tweaking, clean boot, renaming softwaredistribution folder and installing each update manually. Sometimes while installing manually it'll install for almost an hour then fail. I'm desperate here I'd really appreciate some help! Thanks in advance
